Uhor's new desk
« on: December 22, 2021, 05:26:00 PM »
I changed my compositional ideas and so I start a new thread with this preliminary version of a piece for Piano 4 Hands:

Oooh.... REALLY like this. Love the cross-rhythms in the outer sections and the very spare textures midway. The dynamic contrasts really work for me. How was this realised? Notation software? DAW? (I assume not actual players, but maybe...)

Thank you! It was made in Sibelius + Noteperformer.

Exactly what I use... though I've not yet used it to write anything for piano. Good to know that such realistic-sounding playback is possible with it!

Same thing but (rather unreadable) score video:

For small orchestra, this came out

Modes of Accord: https://soundcloud.com/richannes-wrahms/modes-of-accord-preliminary-version

It flows and modulates mostly between the tone centers A, C, F, G and D.

I like it! It gradually develops into a livelier and livelier contrapuntal tapestry, in places very Bach-like. The ending was very much not what I was expecting though, seemingly very unresolved. Was that intentional?

Your joy is welcome.

I accepted some chords in the vocabulary that would classically need resulting because of the tritone in them or have (not very conflicting) extensions, I mostly did avoid unprepared semitones or equivalent.

My intention was to end playfully in a major mode of A (think I ended up choosing the acoustic scale) since the piece begins in A Aeolian.

I may end up adding more counterpoint to this later, but for now:

Some crackhead stuff which is probably not playable anyways.
